According to an article on Savannahnow.com, two 9-year-old girls were hit by a car Monday afternoon right outside Savannah’s Beach High School.
Police report that a 17-year-old student who was driving with a learner’s permit with her mother in the vehicle, exited out of the school’s parking lot and then accelerated and over-steered onto Hopkins Street and toward a tree. The driver attempted to avoid hitting the tree, and struck the two girls who were walking in front of the high school. The vehicle then jumped a curb and ended up hitting a car in the parking lot after crossing over the school’s front lawn
The girls that were struck, Brianna Quarterman and Aaliyah Washington, were taken to Memorial University Medical Center by ambulance. Per the article, as of Moday night, Brianna Quarterman was listed in critical condition and Aaliyah Washington in good condition.
The incident is under investigation by Metro’s Major Accident Investigation Team.
We offer our best wishes to the girls and their families and hope Brianna and Aaliyah are able to make full and quick recoveries from their injuries.
